Crawl Space Waterproofing
To help keep ground moisture vapor from rising up into the home and generating structural damage, you have to seal it off, and prevent water from occupying the area beneath your home. This is why crawl space waterproofing is important to maintaining a home.
Aside from the "ick" factor, the unfavorable consequences of a wet crawl space on the structure of the house might get expensive and dangerous. Flooring boards swell and warp, decay spreads throughout supports and joists, moisture build-up or condensation grows on insulating material, water pipes and ductwork, humidity increases in living areas increasing HVAC expenses, and electrical-mechanical systems deteriorate. All of this reduces the value of the home.
Fortunately, these problems can be resolved by having us waterproof the crawl space area. This can be done using a combination of crawl space waterproofing products.

A sealed and insulated crawl space provides instant benefits by offering a dry, clean, and usable place.

A sealed crawl space can provide you with:

Just as a basement needs dehumidification, so does a crawl space. Moisture in a crawl space will become a breeding ground for mold. Using SantaFe's dehumidifier that is specifically designed for crawl spaces, the air will become fresh and musty free in no time. A crawl space dehumidifier will keep the humidity levels below 60% - this is ideal to ensure the crawl space air is dry and moisture free.
